About this deal

One such new whiskey is Grace O'Malley Blended Irish Whiskey. Grace O'Malley is a newer brand that has old roots. The distillate comes from Great Northern Distillery in Dundalk, which is owned and operated by John Teeling, the founder of the Cooley Distillery. Great Northern is the second-largest grain distillery in Ireland. Grace O'Malley would be a lovely introduction to Irish whiskey for anyone wanting to try it for the first time. She is not the most complicated whiskey, and nor would you expect it to be for the price, but it is well blended and flavoursome. It offers plenty for the drinker and presents a great entry level experience. Whiskybase B.V. is the Dutch private limited liability company, having its statutory seat in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and its office at Zwaanshals 530, 3035 KS Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Whiskybase B.V. is registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under no. 52072819.

Have you heard of Inis Tine Uisce Teoranta? It’s an Irish whiskey and spirits company with a typically uncomplicated Irish name that was founded in 2017. It may not be on your radar because its core brands, Grace O’Malley and Proclamation , are the public-facing side of the operation. But in a short space of time, it has grown exponentially to become a hub of Irish whiskey sourcing, blending, and distributing. From dog food to whiskey Nothing in the Terms shall exclude or limit our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or for death or personal injury resulting from gross negligence or willful misconduct by us. He is, however, very attached to Grace O’Malley Spirits, producers of gin and whiskey here in Ireland. It is owned by managing director Stephen Cope and two German investors. “My brief is to make great whiskey,” says Caris. It was only then I could grieve Dónal and returned to Clare Island with our three children. Although, we were far from alone – practically half the O’Flahertys tailed along with us. I suppose I must have made an impression.

The two are fascinated by the story of this great woman – not only a buccaneer (as the English see it), but also a navigator, clan leader, businesswoman and – above all – a survivor! The story sounds like it was written for our time. Father died in 1565, and as the only child it fell to me to lead the O’Malley fleet. Of course, I could never be official Chieftain – God forbid an enterprising woman be recognised for her achievements! – but I held power all the same. And let me tell you, it took some holding on to. Not a year after father passed the MacMahon’s killed my man Hugh de Lacy. I’d rescued him – given him a home, shared a bed – and they killed him.

Our Service is an online platform which provides Members with information (e.g. bottle facts, market-indices, market values and prices) on (mostly) whisky and allows Members to add information to the platform. We do not sell, nor does the Service provide any option to buy, any alcoholic products. On the palate this whiskey has the same freshness and sweetness as seen on the nose. Crisp and tart green apple notes mingle with a hefty pinch of white pepper and a good dollop of honey. This honey-like note becomes more pronounced with time and heads more in the direction of honeycomb and golden syrup as it does so. These are then joined by further sweet notes such as milk chocolate, toffee and a hint of caramelised pineapple.No partnership, joint venture, agency, or employment relationship is created as a result of your use of the Service. Grace O’Malley, formally Grainne Ní Mháille, was born in 1530 and became known as the “pirate queen of Ireland,” though that seems to be more in the sense of leading maritime vessels against the English navy, not the whole raping and pillaging side of things. Now Grace lends her name to a new Irish whiskey brand, a blend of triple and double distilled single malt (malt is 46% of the blend) plus grain whiskeys, all of ages ranging from 3 to 10 years old. Barrel aging is done in a combination of ex-bourbon, French oak, and rum casks. That’s quite a blend indeed! Let’s give it a try. Whiskybase B.V. (“Whiskybase”, “we” or “us”, company details below) offers a whisky enthusiasts online platform that provides its members access to the most comprehensive, transparent and trusted resource of whisky bottles and allows and stimulates its members to contribute information about whisky bottles to the platform (“Service”).

Nose: My whiskey library filled with aromas of malt and fruit. As I brought the glass to my face, I sniffed out honey, vanilla, citrus, apple, and pear. When I inhaled the vapor through my mouth, I was able to narrow down the apples to Granny Smith. We may, but are not under any obligation, to release new functionalities and tools or other features for the Service every now and then.

Further, we reserve the right to modify, change, discontinue the Service, add or remove features, update the Service, change its appearance, temporarily and permanently, at any time, in whole or any part thereof. The other brand within the range is Proclamation, a dedication to the 1916 Proclamation which was the document that declared Ireland a republic. Cope took pains to recreate the feel of the original document on the label. “The whole concept was for the Irish-American diaspora market, making a liquid that’s as close to bourbon as possible,” Clancy explains. “It’s predominately a grain liquid using whiskey matured in virgin American oak with a little bit of sherry-finished malt at the end”. Underpinning everything is an increasingly robust maltiness and this adds depth and structure. This again has a biscuit-like quality and grips the tastebuds. A late note of toasted nuts (imagine hazelnut but also a suggestion of walnut) accentuates this. Some even later baking and wood spices add to the initial peppery warmth - think of cinnamon and a pinch of powdered ginger especially. Finish: The finish was shorter than I'd hoped for. It was a lovely blend of toasted oak, vanilla, pink peppercorn, and date.Unless mandatory applicable law provides otherwise, your use of and membership to the Service are exclusively governed by Dutch law.

Caris blended the Grace O’Malley Blended Irish Whiskey using whiskeys ranging in age from three to ten years old. The blend includes a wide array of vessels, including French oak, ex-bourbon casks, and ex-rum barrels. It contains 46% malt, 40% double distilled and 6% triple distilled, which the producer describes as “one of the highest malt contents in the blended whiskey category.” Caris took inspiration from the diversity of flavor available in the various cask types to create the profile, according to the producer’s promotional video. The resulting blend is well balanced and harmonious, with no sharp elbows or disjointedness. So light and gentle that it’s almost flighty, I can’t see how anyone would not enjoy a dram or two of this whiskey. Whether they remember it the following day, that’s the question.

My demands were simple – release my captured sons, namely Tibbot the Mac William. Pay me a pension. And, last but not least, call off her dog Bingham. This was all in Latin, of course. She didn’t have any Irish and I sure as hellfire wasn’t going to speak English. Could have been in French or Spanish, but Latin just seemed more fitting, somehow. With a bottle of whiskey and the will to sort the mess out, we thrashed it out.Each and every Member must be of legal drinking age in its country of residence to be allowed to use the Service. If no such law exists in a Member’s country of residence, the Member has to be over 21 years old to use the Service. We have the right to ask you to provide proof of your age and/or to provide further identification to prevent underage usage and/or for any other legal or legitimate purpose. By using the Service, and by creating an account you represent, warrant and confirm that you are of legal age. The finish is a little on the short side. It is the gripping malty characteristic that lingers most as the fruit (that green apple and hint of pineapple) and confected sweetness fade rapidly. This has the effect of bringing the white pepper and warming spices to the fore. For us, it was really important it wasn’t just a brand-slapping exercise, it was actually working together with a team and creating a partner,” Clancy says. “John Teeling is perfect as he knows everything there is to know about Irish whiskey. Once we get the spirit we have our own set-up and master blender to bring together the whole thing and put our stamp on it.” A French master blender in Ireland
